Beautiful New Curious Case of Benjamin Button TV Spot

Paramount debuted a new full length TV spot for David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button way back during the Olympics that just now made its way online. If you thought the first teaser trailer for Benjamin Button was breathtaking, then just wait until you see this. It presents the film in a whole new light - we finally get some dialogue, and we finally get to see the humorous undertones that Fincher so perfectly works into his films. This also finally shows us a bit more of the story of Benjamin's unusual life and his relationships. Get ready for David Fincher's true masterpiece this Christmas.
I actually saw this TV spot way before I went to the Telluride Film Festival and saw the 20 minute sizzle reel. My opinion on the film has since changed ever so slightly, but I'm still very optimistic. I hope others out there watch this TV spot and still feel like this could be a Fincher masterpiece?
Watch the TV spot for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is directed by visionary filmmaker David Fincher, of Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, and Zodiac previously. The screenplay was penned by Oscar winner Eric Roth, of Forrest Gump, The Horse Whisperer, Spielberg's Munich, and The Good Shepherd. The film was adapted from a short story written by legendary writer F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1922. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button arrives in theaters everywhere on December 25th, Christmas Day.

I'm really interested by the concept, but something tells me it's going to be kind of creepy and unsettling, too. I don't know if it fits as a holiday release?

Nothing up until this preview I saw last night on TV made me want to watch this movie. Now I'm interested. I hope its not too cheesy and whimsical, if its is I wont like it, if its Tim Burtonish I wont like it, but this trailer had some nice shots and even some footage of War so it makes me think it might actually be good. I'm gonna have to wait until I see a real review before I see it tho.

I always wondered what it would be like to be born old, and when aging, grow younger. Thanks to this movie, I will be able to see what it could be like. I think this is going to be a great movie. I cant wait to see it. Its from the same guy that did the screen play for forrest gump! And that was one of the best movies ever!
